After being handed his ass by one of the smart kids in the room, Neocon1, a banned former commenter at Blogs for Victory and regular commenter at Glen Beck’s The Blaze, replied the following to Sarah Bloch our culture wars writer regarding Hillary Clinton’s defense of a client accused of rape in 1975:

and you call your self a compassionate human being and a woman?
Then I hope you or your daughter get brutally raped by two men, beaten half to death, then have some complete scumbag bloodsucking lawyer call you a whore responsible for the crime against you…..then come back then and sing the virtues of hillary…….

I would expect any good attorney to attack the investigation, the evidence, the police, but to LIE, disparage, and brutally attack a poor 12yo girl is beyond the pale…but hey you and your ilk freely MURDER your babies so why would you feel any different for a 12yo?
Ghouls who will one day be in the REAL Hell not the fantasy land you play in today…

Sarah, ever the professional journalist replied:

I am a compassionate Human being Neocon1. This is why I can allow your post to stand and not go running back to my beads crying outrage about someone wishing rape on me and my child or feigning faux outrage about my country being disparaged.
She wasn’t a scumbag lawyer as you put it she gave her client the same legal defense that anyone should get under the circumstances. I do find it very interesting sir that even the slightest changes to gun laws, that allow you to keep your guns but challenge their universal sale to adults who simply have the cash and the ability to walk out of an auditorium brings out the truly acidic and ghoulish responses against shooting victims but yet you feel because you are judge, jury and executioner a man accused is a man guilty.

Were this your son accused of this brutal crime I would hope that you would want someone to be as vigorous in his defense. Clinton simply followed the findings of the state psychologist who determined that the girl had sexual fantasies of a nature advanced for her age in their professional opinion and would have testified to that finding under oath. To sweep this under the table would have been a crime which would have lead to Clinton, or any other attorney appointed by a court as defense counsel to be disbarred. The United States Constitution is designed to keep the the justice system from becoming a star chamber and to protect citizens, even those found guilty from the cruel and unusual punishment that conservatives lust for so deeply for anyone they feel has deviated from their Dominionist morality. You and those who think like you are no different from apostate Muslims who in their hearts believe they are “chosen” and that Allah commands them to murder. Stop being a Christianist and work on being a Christian and you will see that the Progressives are doing the work of the guy you say you worship.

Now that is top class . . .

I had to chime in and I’m sure others here will as well:

Neocon1 you once again give me a look inside the head of a conservative. This isn’t about politics to you guys anymore. Religion or your moral beliefs isn’t really the important [see Nancy Reagan’s infidelity and Ronald Reagan’s affair with an 18 year old coed for more] factor. This is about the control of society and those things are only tools to be used to live as you wish while keeping others from what you have. The conservative way is nothing more than an orgy of “do as I say not as I do.” it is a lie wrapped in lovely Jim and Tammy sets, Jerry Falwell brimstone sermons, Catholic Mass incense and a pretense of love and affection for Israel and the Jewish people until you don’t need them after the Rapture. And even that’s a front to keep the poor white trash sending TBN preachers their hard earned gelt to make sure they get to hold the whip hand after Death.

Sad and shitty to wish rape on a woman who I, personally, saw weep and light a candle for your grandchild when you were going through troubling times. And no Sarah doesn’t need your apology America just needs to be rid of the archaic people like you who think they are self made, morally pure and chosen over all others because they are straight white and male. Let me give you a news flash Neocon1 the Creator of the Universe loves all of us–equally. Now how does that fit into your worldview?

hindsight 2127
In Hindsight

Of course Neocon1 will say for the 863,191st time that we are Christian haters, anti-white bigots and communist faggot sympathizers. Well, actually no we aren’t any of those derisive things. We would appreciate it if as the linked post states conservatives would actually act more like Christians. Real Christians not the dime store made in the Confederacy version that gave you Birthers, TEA Partiers and the Palin 2016 crowd. For fuck;s sake people have an original thought in your heads that you didn’t hear from Rush, Hannity or read at the Drudge Report. Stop being more concerned about the abortion of a woman you don’t know and help your fucking next door neighbor who’s struggling. Stop being so concerned about two people you don’t know of the same sex getting married and help by strengthening your own marriage. Cease being bigots about immigration and embrace just how wonderful the diversity in America truly is. Quit wishing it would all just go to shit in a class and ideological civil war just because you are in the last twenty years of your life and you are jealous that there will be more history after you are gone. I beg of you conservative Americans stop being moralizing vessels for hate and start being HUMAN BEINGS. Your very Soul depends on your actions.

I am currently reading John Nolte’s article on 11 reasons the Left has not won the Culture War at Breitbart.com. Simply reading this is making my day because I love to laugh in the morning. Millions of conservatives have likely read this today and more than a thousand have commented. Those comments will be covered by Fred Schwartz later in the day.

Nolte begins with same sex marriage which I see as a full faith and credit legal issue not a moral and religious one. I don’t think, however, that any shop owner has a right to refuse service to a gay couple anymore than they have the right to refuse service to a person based on their race, religion, gender or disability. The author feels that the “voice of the people” has been tossed out in favor of the rulings of “activist judges.” In a bizarre twist John Nolte points to a rise in “Christian entertainment” as proof that Americans really do not want people they do not know of the same sex to get married. The singular example is the film “Heaven is for Real” which has grossed nothing yet because the film is to be released today. Nolte’s point is that Sony TriStar Pictures has decided to release the film on a Wednesday in 2,417 theaters. This film and others like it are one point Nolte shows as proof that on the topic of same sex marriage the Right is winning. I will make a claim here: Heaven is for Real will not make more money between its premiere and the end of the box office weekend than “Transcendence” will make from its opening until Sunday night on a theater by theater basis.

The next Culture War issue is the legalization of marijuana. Both Washington state and Colorado have legalized the weed most notorious to conservatives and more states are moving to decriminalize small amounts. Most recently the state of Maryland did just that becoming the first state south of the Dixon-Line to decriminalize pot. Fourteen other states and the District of Columbia have also done so. Nolte does not address any of the medical reasons for pot use or even recreational ones as a justification for a victory here in the Culture war. Instead he states that abortion rights activists are on their heels quoting an article on Breitbart.com no less about a poll conducted by the Knights of Columbus regarding abortion rights. The Gallup Polling Service numbers show that those who view themselves as pro-Life vice those that are pro-Choice are nearly equal at 48% to 45%. The numbers of those seeing abortion as federally defined from the same poll vice those who do not believe abortion should be legal at all is 52% vice 20% as of May 2013. Nolte loses this battle as well.

Nolte sticks with entertainment decrying the amount of sex on television but reveling in what he calls the return of the masculine male on the National Geographic Channel. These shows according to the author “celebrate the working class and their traditional values.” What he really means is they celebrate being white, Christian and living in the woods or where it’s very cold. The next “reason” the Right is winning the Culture War is the ascendancy of Jimmy Fallon to the Tonight Show as a counter to Stephen Colbert stepping into David Letterman’s slot after his retirement next year. There is no rhyme or reason to this at all.

The next nugget reveals something about conservatives. They like strong male characters. Nolte point to Don Draper [Mad Men] Walter White [Breaking Bad] and Tony Soprano [The Sopranos] as examples of these. They are called “flawed” and “anti-heroes” and I imagine that takes the guilt away for all the nudity, sex, drugs and violence which conservative say they are against on TV.

More entertainment, really? Miley Cyrus is popular but unions are dying says Nolte. I fear conservatives may never come out of this irrational abyss. As if the weakness of unions in America is a good thing for those working class people they say they love?

Conservative media is on the upswing says Nolte. Well get back to me in 20 years when most Fox News viewers are either dead or senile or have slaughtered their family. There is a trend in there demographically if you just take the time to look.

Women are getting birth control but conservatives have their guns! This is awful. War on women much? The fear of the Other is oozing here.

Nolte sees more money in politics as a solution to what ails the Right politically. No John, the key would be to make your tent bigger. Oh, that’s right you can’t do that because you’d have to let in all those brown people, women and gay people on a level playing field.

Yes, Occupy is dead but given time the TEA Party will wither as well. I think the date on that tombstone will be somewhere around 1 February 2017.

What John Nolte needs is a time machine so he can return to that conservative era of his father the 1950s. Back then by conservative standards women were in their place (not barefoot and pregnant but seen and not heard), minorities were second class citizens and it was a crime to be gay. It must be awful for John Nolte to have to watch as all that unearned privilege is redistributed in the form of earned civil rights.

I’ve heard some really stupid things come out of the mouths of overpaid pundits for this ideology or that over the last few years but this one from Liz Trotta at Breitbart.com really takes the cake. Trotta’s commentary states that since people don’t believe in the devil anymore society is just going to keep getting worse and worse. That really means that conservatives are going to keep losing culture war battles over things that the young people and moderates, you know the folks who really make the decisions about society in America, find fully acceptable. As you, loyal reader, know, I am a citizen in good standing, gainfully employed in the breathtaking capitol city of Hell, Dis.

If there’s one thing I know about, with a personal certainty it’s what the state of Old Scratch is. The tyrant who once ruled all twenty city-states of Hell, what you Living folks call the Afterlife on its own special plane of existence with its own cool new rule book, no longer exists having been cast into Oblivion just over 14 Terran standard years ago. Now I know there are conservatives and their most vitriolic bigoted fringe of white male Dominionists that will never accept that this is the case because it doesn’t play well with their end time needs. To them all I can say is sorry for your bad luck pal. Yet and still these people believe in talking snakes, talking fiery bushes and a rapture that isn’t even in the Bible but was made up nearly out of whole cloth in the 1830s. That aside for the moment at least I have to admit that Trotta is moving in the right direction when she says, “Our need to be shocked, though, has spiraled out of control, and death surrounds everyone, especially the children.” The thread is lost when she doesn’t go into why all the guns? Or why not decriminalize marijuana and cocaine? Or why do conservative pundits have to push the fear button every time? Instead Liz Trotta starts to whine and drone on about things in popular culture that she finds annoying or offensive. Liz Trotta does not care about what children see or do her job, her only job is to put a seed of fear in the minds of middle aged white men and women who already feel that the country they are living in is somehow less free, less safe and less prosperous simply because Barack Obama is president and his face is not white.

hindsight 2057
In Hindsight

This commentary by Trotta ought to be must see TV for every Progressive young person who gives any thought to what the real motivations of the Conservative movement are. I like the analogy that the GOP is on its way to becoming a “zombie party” having been infected with the TEA Party virus they are now running around foaming at the mouth like the crazed undead from the Resident Evil movie franchise. [Note to Milla Jovovich: I know these movies pay you a shitload of money but I’d really like to see you “act” again.–V.D.] The chief reason for the concentration of this virus among a single nearly homogeneous demographic is because of delivery systems like Liz Trotta. Why do moderates and Progressives not fall for this nonsense? Well for the most part we;ve built up and immunity to the Limbaugh strain, the Coulter strain and the Hannity strain after many years of constant exposure. But wait! There’s hope! For any conservatives out there hoping they could cure themselves of possibly save their children from becoming political zombies as well I hear a little drug called Reason works every time and has a double effect it relieves the symptoms of bigotry brought on out of anger that one is simply middle class and middle aged.

As_DaVinci_would_have_seen_Pain

Yesterday Ron Mapes of Concord, New Hampshire wrote the following letter to the editor of the Concord Monitor:

“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our government’s reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America’s debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, ‘the buck stops here.’ Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”– Sen. Barack Obama, March 2006

I think this statement by Obama, failed leader of this nation, pretty much explains to all honest, true red-blooded American patriots who love God and country what exactly is wrong with the United States of America right now. The time for Obama’s impeachment is now; the proof is there many times over. It’s time to get rid of those we elected last time and bring in honest, faithful political leaders who have the guts to get the job done and get it done right the first time.

It’s obvious those we elected last time were bought and paid for, not elected. Wake up and get it right this time.

Mr Mapes selectively quotes then Senator Obama’s speech of 16 March 2006 on the floor of the United States Senate. The full text of that speech is archived here at Snopes.com. The point the letter writer is trying to make is not a simple one, however, We, Ourselves, see the message as very clear. President Obama, to Mr Mapes and millions of other like minded Americans, is not an honest person. To the conservative element bent on having its way despite being a retrograde minority view sees the 44th President of the United States as the antithesis of a “true red blooded American patriot.” The leader of the free world therefore to the far right does not love the G-d that all conservative white Americans worship on this very day. And most definitively this man that was twice elected President does not love the country despite garnering 135 million votes in those two elections and presiding over the most difficult economic recovery in American since the Great Depression.

Mapes says the time for Impeachment of the sitting president is now. We, Ourselves of The Collective and the Meditators feel America, to use a popular colloquialism has bigger fish to fry. We believe that those who believe as this man does are fighting a war long lost on behalf of the memory of those long dead who reaped the benefits of generations of misogyny, bigotry and power concentrated in the hands of a tribally loyal few. The Collective understands that there is huge profit in telling people with closed minds exactly what they want to hear. Rush Limbaugh has made a career of doing just that. We, Ourselves, would ask you, the reader of this post, what has Limbaugh ever offered as a solution to any of the problems that America has today? Better, when his ideology ruled in Washington did he do anything other than to support his side blindly?

The Meditators often ask why people, no matter how tribally motivated do such things? We ask the same question in regard to minority violence in urban centers all across America? But unlike the far right which seeks only to blame others for its ills while offering nothing new as a solution, We Ourselves do strive to put measures forth to stem the suffering of the American middle class. Ron Mapes ideology is not the disease it is a symptom of the inability for a segment of America not to be able to let go of the need to have someone to struggle against vice joining the fight for Progress. Trillions have been wasted on the War on Drugs and the War on Poverty which were doomed without utilizing the proper tools. The solutions to both are legalization and education. To be a member of free society demands both responsibility and sacrifice and to that end ideological conservatives and thugs that want to hurt people and damage property are joined at the hip. Neither see what they are doing to their reputations as a group as harm because they are enjoying their moment in the sun.

Impeachment is not the solution to the problems that Ron Mapes sees that are a cancer in America, because Obama is not the problem. The problem in America now is that the conservative ideologues on Main Street USA have taken the Middle Class hostage piled them onto a train speeding toward a mountain tunnel where the poor are forced to roam and are smiling all the way to the bank with overflowing campaign coffers thanks to Citizens United. If you want more freedom and prosperity in America do not vote for the party that wants to send America back to back alley abortions, racial segregation and criminal prosecutions for LGBT persons; vote for a party that wants all people to be at least middle class and if you falter will be there with a safety net to allow you to reach for the brass ring. Bruce Currie who comments on the letter makes the obvious even more clear:\

This letter illustrates the extent to which some in this country are completely divorced from reality–when it comes to economics, politics, and virtually anything that requires coherent thought. That’s a summary description of those who identify as Tea Party members or their fellow travelers. Ted Cruz and his merry band of pranksters have led the Republican Party to the brink–and are taking the country with it. They’re getting hammered in the polls, and dragging the greater Republican Party down with them. Their recklessness is hurting millions of Americans who depend on the government, and yet we have some here who are cheering them on, and blaming the president and the Democrats for what is entirely the fault of a few extremist Republicans. Have they no appreciation for facts and the truth? Have they no shame?

Does this sound familiar?

COCO AUSTIN THURSDAY: PUTTING YOUR POLITICAL CARDS ON THE TABLE

Posted in 2012 ELECTION GOP AUTOPSY, 2014 ELECTIONS, 2016 ELECTIONS, COCO AUSTIN, COCO THONG THURSDAY, CONSERVATIVE ANTI-INTELLECTUALISM, CONSERVATIVE BIGOTRY, CONSERVATIVE FEAR, CONSERVATIVE HYPOCRISY, CONSERVATIVE IGNORANCE, FRED SCHWARTZ OPINIONS, POLITICS, PRESIDENT OBAMA, TEA PARTY, TEA PARTY VIOLENCE with tags , , , , , on 10/10/2013 by Fredrick Schwartz, D.S.V.J., O.Q.H.

Most of you who read my articles know that I am a Progressive. The question posed by The majordomo this morning was exactly the one I’ve been asking conservatives all over Hell for the last 9 days. If ObamaCare is busted and won’t work, why are you guys trying to defund it? The clearest answer is the right is fearful that ObamaCare will work and come to be applauded as President Obama’s signature accomplishment in the future. Couple this with the facts that the base of the GOP is literally dying right out from under them and you have a perfect fetid swamp that can grow all manner of political crazies from Rand Paul to Ted Cruz to Michele Bachmann. End times? Really?

Coco Austin (9)

I feel it’s high time to do what Coco is doing up there and put all the cards on the table. First, the GOP needs to grow up and realize that ObamaCare is the law of the land. Second, the administration needs to get someone, anyone to fix what’s wrong with the ObamaCare website and do that soon rather than later. But for the government shutdown this would have been the lead story for the past nine days. If it was possible for a political party to shoot themselves in the foot after shooting themselves in the head this is it. The terror of a few Congressmen being primaried caused the GOP to blow what should have been its biggest political public relations victory in decades. Now Boehner is trapped and likely won’t make it ti 2014 as Speaker. With 2016 looming right around the corner it would take aliens landing on Terra for there to be a GOP majority in both houses of Congress and a GOP president in the White House. Maybe they need to take that 2012 autopsy out and read it again.

A daring post from a Liberal commenter both here and at Blogs4Victory. This should be any Progressive’s first read this morning:

Thanks for mentioning our conversations Cluster. I appreciate it. I think that Amazona is correct in saying that social issues should not be the focus of any government, let alone one based upon conservative precepts. To take that statement to its logical conclusion, we all should be libertarian, as long as we do not devolve into anarchy. Unfortunately this is not the case. There are many, to many IMO, that are obsessed with social issues and use the government and it’s law making and law enforcing power to enact both restrictions and allowances. I am not a constitutional expert. I have a DAR manual that I look at from time to time but mostly for a point of clarification. I agree that it is a brilliantly written document and that the authors had enough forethought and enlightenment to be cognizant of the future. But it is also a product of it’s time, written by human beings who were every bit as complicated and flawed and brilliant and tragic as anyone living today. The essence of all words, as a conveyance of thinking, is metaphorical. (A word itself.) And as such, the words are subject to interpretation. An argument can be made that the “intent” that Amazona mentioned, is nothing more than learned guessing. (Emphasis on ned in learned.) One of the functions of the Supreme Court, is to interpret the meaning of the language that comprises the Constitution, by way of a shared consensus of opinion between a quorum of justices.
But in a representative government, if a social issue is a concern, then it does become subject to legislation. This has been a fact throughout human history. We do not live in a vacuum (no pun intended towards those who doubt my aviator skills) and in 2013 there are over 300 million people who live in the US. In 1776 there were ~ 2.5 and were primarily agrarian.
I think that conservative principals are the best choice where the issue(s) are economic in nature. But I do not disparage a degreed economist who happens to have a more fundamental understanding of the dynamics of a multi-trillion economy and how it interacts not only with those that have a dollar in their pocket, but now amongst the entire planet as well.
As I see it, it is not the educational system that is to blame, or the inherent bias that all people and businesses possess that is the root of the problems conservatism is experiencing, it is the behavior, the claims and the reporting of it. A few examples exist on this blog alone. Retired Spook going on about transformation. Society, culture and politics are fluid, not static.Please provide some specific examples Retired Spook, of how our country is suffering from the progressive nature of time and the changing attitudes of the population. There are very few examples that my feeble brain can come up with that verify your conviction that an uber left even exists, let alone paint with such broad strokes this “intense dislike of how America was founded.” Just how was it founded? Not why, but how. And why do you stereotype? Not all “liberals” are America hating. In fact, most people desire a better America, not a worse one.
Amazona’s use of inflammatory adjectives as a method of demeaning and undermining alternative points of view. And her obsession with spelling, grammar and punctuation. (I write the way I speak, commas substituting for pauses.)
I won’t even address Neo. There isn’t a better representative for the fanatical, fringe extreme that gives conservatives a bad reputation than he. Conservatism isn’t the problem. It’s conservatives.
I am a supporter of smaller government. I do not think excessive regulation(s) are a good thing. I think local control is superior to national but I also recognize the duplicity that currently exists on the right, how traditional conservatism has been eviscerated by a pandering to a certain type of uninformed and fearful individual and how tribalism has been exploited to further the monetary goals of others. This is the human condition. This is what Machiavelli often referred to and encouraged. I think that for conservatism to make a resurgence, it has to go through a metamorphosis. Unfortunately for those currently experiencing this change, it is a difficult process and it is perfectly understandable to want to blame those that don’t subscribe to the ideology, whom are not fixated with blaming the “media” or contemporary popular culture for their poor and declining image. There is a difference between cooperation and capitulation. This demarcation applies to all sides of the political grid. Self examination is a positive. A refusal to accept the need to change is not. And this applies to everyone on both a personal level and as a member of a group.
OK. I think I will slither back into my hole now.

CHARLES BLOW EXPLAINS HALF OF THE STORY

Charles Blow wrote in The New York Times yesterday about the problem posed by misinformation machines like Rep. Michele Bachmann of Minnesota. Bachmann is a symptom of the disease the GOP is suffering from post a second thumping defeat in a presidential election. Blow, via the Pew Research Center’s Andrew Kohut, is spot on in his analysis that the GOP today is in the same place the Democrats were in back in 1973:

Andrew Kohut, the founding director of the Pew Research Center, pointed out in The Washington Post on Friday that the party’s ratings “now stand at a 20-year low,” and that is in part because “the outsize influence of hard-line elements in the party base is doing to the G.O.P. what supporters of Gene McCarthy and George McGovern did to the Democratic Party in the late 1960s and early 1970s — radicalizing its image and standing in the way of its revitalization.”

This was the quote that tied the Blow piece together for me, but it doesn’t come close to scratching the surface of a solution set to the GOP’s problem with those who have driven drunk on ideological purity past the exit for Conservatism, ignored the road washed out signs and are heading on the long journey toward political illegitimacy in a car called Reactionary. The quote from the Kohut article in the Washington Post that rings truest was that the Democrats in 1973 were branded as the party of “acid, abortion and amnesty.” Now the GOP has been, by its insistence on demagoguery over details and purity of ideology over the people and their needs, has become, to many Americans the party of “Religion, rifles and returning to the 1950s.”Someone call the alliteration police, please.

The solution for the GOP is the same solution the Democrats used to win in 1976. They found an honest man who could hold the place in the White House for four years. But for the economy and foreign policy failure in Iran James Earl Carter Jr would have been a two term president. Carter may be forgotten as a president in one hundred years or so cast into the same bin of “oh those guys” where Millard Fillmore and James Garfield reside, but he really shouldn’t be. Carter, being a Southern governor forced the GOP into an alliance that was backward looking rather than forward thinking. To get the White House back and to appear more appealing to the conservatives still feeling stung by the crimes of Richard Nixon the GOP establishment made what is the closest thing politically to making a deal with the Devil– they got in bed with fundamentalism in the form of the Moral Majority.

Unbeknownst to conservatives at the time The Moral Majority was literally the very last gasp of power for the Christian Right in America despite Falwell’s famous quote as the organization disbanded in 1989:

“Our goal has been achieved . . . The religious right is solidly in place and . . . religious conservatives in America are now in for the duration.”

Governor Chris Christie

What the GOP needs now is what Carter gave the Democrats in 1976, a foothold in the backyard of the opposition. The Right cannot continue to become more and more reactionary nor can they copycat history by running a black candidate for the sake of the “we’re inclusive!” award for 2016. The GOP needs an urban and urbane leader for the Northeast and that man is New Jersey Govern or Chris Christie. For the GOP to nominate anyone other than Christie might be that last effort to give the Grand Old Party a defibrillator jolt back to life–even if Christie is a one term president due to circumstances beyond his control. There will have to be a genuine outreach to blacks and Latinos and the GLBTQ community for there ever to be a GOP president elected. I even have doubts if Governor Christie could beat Clinton or even Biden in 2016. But I’ll end with the same question that the Carter campaign asked the American people in 1976, “America, why not the best?”
